COURSE DETAILS

This course continues to develop the four language skills (listening, reading, writing and speaking) which were practised at GCSE level. However, students at A-Level will relish the opportunity to express themselves more fluently in speech and writing as opposed to learning large chunks of language off by heart.

Students will study a Spanish film and a book in depth and will also look at a range of topics, relating to Spain, including Spanish regional differences, Spanish youth and monarchies and dictatorship in the Spanish speaking world.

The study of Grammar continues, although students will find that a large portion of the grammar required will already have been introduced at GCSE level. The key difference is that now students will want to use grammar to create new language to facilitate self-expression.
